The ruling by the court in Strasbourg, which Italy said it would appeal, said crucifixes on school walls -- a common sight that is part of every Italian's life -- could disturb children who were not Christians.

Italy has been in the throes of national debate on how to deal with a growing population of immigrants, mostly Muslims, and the court sentence is likely to become another battle cry for the center-right government's policy to restrict newcomers.

So ... because the immigrant muslims might be upset, Italy is supposed to be rid of any crucifixes in the schools? Over there a crucifix is more of a part of heritage then real religion. (Italians aren't church goers as much as you'd think).

Giving up their heritage all because it might offend the incoming muslims. :mad:

Italy needs to man up and tell the muslims 'tough shit, we will keep our heritage'.

You watch, when this stuff arrives here (and eventually it will) I suspect that desiring to appease the Muslims because of their violent responses to anything they deem offensive will trump fairness and common sense and our government will do the same thing.

the usa should learn from italy, france, the uk, netherlands, etc. muslim immigration needs to be stopped now and the government must refuse to accede to their demands because they intend to outbreed westerners and take over our lands, impose sharia law, make us all dhimmis. welcome to the new middle ages.
